We have four independent living villages for you to choose your new home from.
Who owns and manages the Independent Living villas?
Catholic Homes owns and operates four Independent Living villages, as well as residential aged care and home care services. The organisation is an incorporated association (est. 1965) and a registered charitable institution.
Catholic Homes is governed by its Board and managed by a highly experienced executive team with a broad range of qualifications and expertise including business, nursing and health services, accounting and community development.
Do I own the villa?
Residents don’t own the asset but may benefit from any growth in its value when their villa is “sold”.
When you purchase a lease, your payment means that when there is capital growth on the property upon re-sale, you share in this growth. This is sometimes called a “capital share lease” arrangement.
Villa values go up and down over time in much the same way as your current residence. Under the Independent Living Village Agreement, residents receive the benefit of a proportion of capital growth, subject to conditions, upon re-leasing. This does vary between villages and organisations and you should check to see if an agreement allows you to benefit from capital growth.
What age does the oldest resident of a couple have to be to live in an Independent Living village?
To qualify for residency, at least one resident in a villa must be aged 55 years or older.
All residents should be capable of Independent Living in the village.
Can I have a pet?
Yes, pets may be permitted at the discretion of Catholic Homes and must be authorised in writing.
Incoming residents must abide by and sign a Pet Agreement Form, as your pet should not intrude on your neighbour’s amenity. Assistance and guide dogs are permitted.
